Okay then it sounds like an issue with either the driver or the card. Please perform the following.

Hello kings121,

 

If I may chime in while dmccoy is offline.

 

Two things of note regarding the GTX 1080 in Speccy, 1: There is no Nvidea software for any GTX 1080 add on video card installed. 2: The PCI-E X16 slot where an add on video card goes is shown to be in use but no add on video card is listed anywhere in the hardware specifications only the Intel HD graphics are.

 

Couple of questions if I may;

 

What is the brand and model name or number of the PSU.

 

Was the GTX 1080 in the PCI-E slot when you ran Speccy, if yes, was the 8 pin supplemental power supply dongle from the PSU securely connected to the GTX 1080.

 

As an asides kings121, can I ask how come you are using Windows 10 Enterprise

That particular PSU was first released back in 2007 and was discontinued years ago, how old is the one that you have.

 

It the PSU is so old that it is out of warranty I would not use it anywhere near my computer and especially if it had a video card that cost circa 6500 Krona/$800+.

 

The card being in the slot but not identified in the specifications could be down to having no drivers** but it could also be hardware related such as not being enabled in the BIOS, the PSU not being up to the task or a bad PCI-E slot on the MB>

 

windows 10 was installed by a friend 

 

 

The following not intended as lecture but to hopefully help keep you understand the implications of using unlicensed software.

 

Your friend should take what they install on other folks computers, fine if they wish to use such software on their computer but using it on yours puts you on the wrong side of the law, the Enterprise version of Windows is used by large capacity users such as the IT industry, hospitals and schools etc, these type of users have what is known as a Volume Licence Key for which they pay an agreed amount with Microsoft, the same Windows product is installed on as many in house computers as is permitted, using the product key on any personal computer is not permitted and is in fact illegal.

 

** one of the affects of having unauthorised software on your computer will be that at some point you will be blocked from installing any Windows updates, you may already be having an issue with this as Windows would normally download what it deemed the most appropriate Nvidea drivers for your GTX 1080 for you, the fact that it hasn`t may or may not be related to the version of Windows that is installed on your computer.

 

Microsoft Volume Licensing

 

Have you actually purchased your own product key for any version of Windows 10, if not, do so asap and reinstall a legitimate version of Windows before MS detects what is on your computer and flags it up as being unauthorised, as per the GTG Terms of Use that you agrred to abide by when you created your account we cannot continue to help you until you have a legitimate OS on your computer.

Keep the above firmly in mind else you could end up with a rather expensive GTX 1080 as a paperweight.

 

Speccy still showing a card populating the X16 PCI-E slot so I take it that your GTX 1080 is in it.

 

Have you installed the chipset drivers for the motherboard.

 

Do you have the correct drivers for the GTX 1080 saved to your desktop.

Windows is not responsible for installing your motherboard drivers, you need to do this, you should have a drivers disk that came with your motherboard.

 

The GPU drivers are secondary for now as you need to get the motherboard drivers installed and starting with the Intel chipset drivers first.
